About Me

Western North Carolina has been my home for most of my life. I was born in Sylva and raised in Northern Jackson County near the Cherokee Indian Reservation and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I graduated from Western Carolina University with a B.S. in Education and Master in Ed. Following that, I was employed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Cherokee, NC, to teach Cherokee children.

I’ve traveled around the country both as a small business owner and for personal pleasure. But the beautiful mountains of this area have always held a special place in my heart. It is a joy to share this unique region with others who are visiting and moving to Western North Carolina.

Experience

I enjoy putting my passion, business experience, and lifelong love of our beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains to work to help you meet your real estate goals.

Before becoming a full-time professional real estate agent, I served the community as a teacher, small business owner, and home design consultant. For 21 years, I ran my own retail needlework and gift shop in Dillsboro, NC, a unique little mountain arts and crafts village. During that time, I also partnered with a local artist to create a needlework design company. After selling my business, I worked with a large furniture and design company, assisting clients in their home design.

These careers not only helped me tap into my passion for design and helping people, they helped me hone those same skills for my real estate clients. I am an invaluable resource for helping you navigate our mountain communities to find the home that best fits your needs. I have built and remodeled my own home here in the mountains, so I can be of assistance in finding builders/home service and supply sources for your property.

Organization and dedication are the best qualities I bring to each of my clients ready to buy or sell a home. I will strive to give you the best possible service with honesty, good communication, availability, and lots of energy.

Margaret was the listing agent for a property we saw listed on Realtor.com Margaret was very thorough and readily available throughout the process Margaret almost immediately returned calls or text if she was unable to answer. Her knowledge of area was extremely beneficial to us as we had moved from Florida to area and had been residing in our RV while pursuing real estate. We cannot say enough about Margaret and her professionalism. We valued her experience, her suggestions, and her knowledge of the area and process up to due diligence period and then closing.

Margaret is extremely knowledgeable and worked very well with us to respond to questions and recommendations we presented. Margaret always kept us informed during the selling process and placed our interest first. Eventually Margaret took on the responsibility of a dual agent. Margaret's skills as a Real Estate Agent and her integrity brought together the finale sale of our property. My wife Vivian and I did not have interaction with other staff members at Beverly-Hanks. However, while I was in Waynesville the other day I passed the office and was very impressed. I mentioned that to Margaret and she has offered to give us a tour.

Margaret Cogdill was very professional in every way. Because I live out of state, the buying process was a bit more stressful than an in state purchase. Margaret always kept me abreast every step of the buying process. She was quick to respond to any texts or emails. She made it easy. She’s not only professional and knowledgeable, but she is also a joy!

We live out of state and initially did not know exactly what we wanted or a well defined price range. Despite all these obstacles, Margaret rose to the challenge finding and helping narrow down the choices. She was always available and replied to inquiries quickly. I could always count on Margaret to handle any issue that arose, there were many. Thank you for all your help. Very helpful and courteous staff. The space is clean and open, with a residential feel that promotes a relaxed atmosphere. I had issues with insurance agents, investment transactions and bank, but the one reliable constant was Margaret and the Beverly-Hanks team.

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
